Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch (Black Depths #1)
by J.E. Hunter
Genre: YA Paranormal
Release Date: April 2014
Death, power, transformation….
When Nessa’s dad dies, the last thing she’s expecting is to lose everything else too. But when her hair suddenly turns electric red, and her estranged grandma turns up on her doorstep ready to haul her off to an isolated island, that’s exactly what happens. In one day, Nessa losses her mother and her friends, and learns that she’s a redheaded sea-witch with magical powers. She’s one of many Neptunians—magical beings blessed by the sea, including selkies, mermaids, pirates, and sea nymphs. Nessa doesn’t want to live on an island, she doesn’t want to be a sea-witch, and she certainly doesn’t want to be hunted by humans who harvest Neptunians for their magical powers. But if Nessa wants to live, she’ll have to accept her new life and everything that comes with it including a witty pirate named Caesar, who just might break her heart.
Challenges arise at home and at school. Nessa struggles with her lessons, her friendships, and her burgeoning romance. She has no idea who she is, where she belongs, or that the danger lurking in the shadows is about to tear apart her world all over again…
Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch is the first book of the Black Depths series. This stunning series of books follow Nessa, a sea-witch. The second and third books, Broken Tide and Dark Shores, are also available on Amazon, as well a Black Depths novella, Windbound, which features the siren, Amynta, from the Black Depths series.
On Location for Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch
by J. E. Hunter
The Pacific Coast of Canada is one of my favourite places on the planet. I first went out to Vancouver Island in 2001, when I was nineteen. I hiked small parts of the Juan De Fuca Trail and quickly fell in love with the beauty of the coastline. There’s a crisp, clean smell to the air, and the moisture and dampness feels amazing on your skin. The lush greenery was more vibrant than anything I’d ever seen before, and there were tide-pools galore which housed bright coloured starfish, anemones and sea urchins, as well as many other strange and wondrous lifeforms.
I’ve returned to the Pacific Coast many times since that first trip. Below are some pictures I took in and around Tofino as I was developing and researching the setting for Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch. Enjoy!
